Taylor Swift with the CEO of Universal Music Portugal on the backstage of The Eras Tour Lisbon

Taylor Swift is giving Swifties a warm greeting in Portugal!
The pop superstar, 34, surprised fans by speaking Portuguese at the opening of her first-ever show in Lisbon, Portugal, for her Eras tour on Friday, May 24.

In a video posted from the concert by The Hollywood Reporter on X (formerly Twitter), Swift addressed the cheering crowd as she stood center stage at the Estádio da Luz stadium where she performed.

“Muito obrigada,” she said as she placed her hand on her heart, which translates as “thank you very much” in English, causing the stadium to erupt in louder cheers. The singer then fanned herself as she continued to gaze at the crowd.

“Oh, Lisbon you … you’re making me feel amazing right now!” Swift added, clutching her chest again before continuing the show.

Swift also spoke Portuguese elsewhere during the concert as she urged fans to be helped in the crowd, according to videos posted on social media.

While performing “The Smallest Man in the World” from her new album The Tortured Poets Department, Swift appeared to ask security for help while standing center stage as she said, “Ayuda por favor,” and pointed out to the crowd, according to a second clip posted by THR on X.

In another video posted on X by a fan account, Swift asked for help again as she said, “Ajuda por favor,” while playing the piano during her performance of “Champagne Problems.”

The singer’s concert debut in Portugal comes after a long wait from Portuguese fans. Swift was initially scheduled to perform in the country at the Alive festival in July 2020, which ended up being canceled due to the pandemic, per Portugal Resident.

Swift was also seen in a photo posted on X from Friday’s concert unveiling an updated version of her Roberto Cavalli two-piece outfit for her “1989” performance as she wore a sparkly purple bralet this time with a sparkly blue mini skirt and blue and purple glittery boots.
The singer has showcased several new outfits for the European leg of her Eras tour since her show in Paris on May 9.

These include a custom white Vivienne Westwood gown featuring lyrics from her latest album TTPD, an orange Versace bodysuit and blazer and a yellow Alberta Ferretti dress.

Swift was also supported by her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, and friends Gigi Hadid and Bradley Cooper during the Paris leg of her Eras Tour. The trio attended her fourth show in Paris on May 12.
